Blueberry Muffins

Light, airy muffins are always a favourite in the AGA kitchen and we love these blueberry versions with a sweet cinnamon topping. Simple enough for novice cooks, they make perfect lunchbox fillers and teatime treats – you could always leave the cinnamon out if you’re not a fan and swap the blueberries for raspberries if you’d prefer.
